L’Avancher blew all my expectations out of the water. I’ve never been to Val or even France so I was nervous about getting around and communicating. The staff helped with everything – they made reservations, recommendations, etc…the owner was about as nice and helpful as they come. The hotel is located about a 15 minute (max) walk from the base... More

Hotel Avancher - Val d Isere We booked into this hotel for just one night, however I'd not have been disappointed if we had stayed longer. We were warmly welcomed and checked in to a very well appointed room and after checking in we were told the sauna would be ready in 40 mins The room was well appointed to... More

This was the second time we stayed at L’Avancher. This time we wanted to stay a little longer to do some hiking, and we did not regret coming back. We love this hotel! The atmosphere is quite unique; thanks to the small size of the hotel, the charming interior design, and the friendly staff; the hotel is a very relaxing... More

I stayed for one night in off season and I thought it was a great place. Decent breakfast, good bar and nice rooms with toiletries provided. The staff were very friendly and provided excellent service.

This hotel was the absolute best, in all categories I can think of. The accommodations were clean, well organized, maintained, and most of all quite cozy; all in all superb. The architecture was quaint and well considered. The food was, oh my gosh simply out of this world good. The service however was the most over-the-top good I've ever encountered... More

The hotel itself was surprisingly nice, and quiet. Not too long walking distance from the town centre, restaurants and apres ski places. The rooms had everything you need during your skiing trip. Breakfast was also good - selection of bread, meets, cheese, freshly boiled eggs, muesli,... Here I have to mention the waiters who didn't have problems to prepare espresso,... More

The 4th year in a row at the L'Avancher and we enjoy it every time. This time; they fixed ski passes as well as skies. The passes we collected in the reception and the ski shop was close to the tourist office. What is nice; you enter the ski shop with your boots. They fix the skis and you leave.... More

Just come back from a few days in Val d'Isere. First stay at the L'Avancher but I'm hoping it will be one of many - my 2 skier friends and I always spend a long weekend in Val d'Isere each year and, up to now, have stayed at other hotels in the town. The location, rooms, cleanliness and the overall... More

We have just returned from our 2nd stay in L'Avancher, it's not often that we will return to the same place but we couldn't resist and we are already thinking about 2015. Leading up to our stay Isabel was very helpful and arranged everything for us so all we had to do was turn up and ski and she provided... More

Fantastic service from all the friendly staff, super tasty food and a convenient location a few mins walk outside of Val. Our room was small but tidy with a comfortable bed. Definitely eat there for dinner!
